There are countless versions of this book on offer, and I took a long time selecting this one. It's beautiful hardback with more old fashioned feel and text plus delightful illustrations. I'm hoping the reading of this to our new daughter will become a family Christmas tradition.
This is a short book compared to others illustrated by Ingpen , but absolutely BEAUTIFUL.Stunning illustrations .gorgeous poem for young and old . I am buying it for all my friends children and my nieces as it is a classic....to be read with a hot chocolate late on Christmas Eve which will put everyone in the spirit. the only thing that would have made it better would have been a santa in green( not coca cola red) which would have lent itself perfectly to this magical poem. Buy it , its a bit of magic!
